In reply to Jon Wickham: I didnt realise there was mixed climbing on Med Bow, i thought it was to cold and dry out there to form ice and neve. Kind of wish i sought it out when i wss out there now. what is the typical mixed season up there? i assume for much of the winter it is innacessible with all the snow?
Also is there no mountain rescue in the area? that was an amazing effort getting out unaided.
